#JOSTTT005 Balmy Tropics

The Facebook group I belong to, The Joy of Sets, has a fun monthly Tic Tac Toe challenge blog (check it out here) and this time around, I actually achieved TWO rows! I was having a difficult time trying to decide what to do at first. But once I decided to stop overthinking it, it just started to flow. I love all the layers on this card and how there is such depth – some things are popped up on one Dimensional, some on two and the shaker component is made with the Foam Adhesive Strips. I can’t stop shaking it – I love the sound of the diamonds in it! Interactive shaker cards are the best!

Here’s the #JOSTTT005 May Challenge:JOSTTT005 Challenge

I did Green-Flowers-Stripes and Stripes-Blue-Emboss and I’m feeling so accomplished!
